License tagging for Image:BSF1 Standard e-mail view.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading Image:BSF1 Standard e-mail view.jpg. Wikipedia gets thousands of images uploaded every day, and in order to verify that the images can be legally used on Wikipedia, the source and copyright status must be indicated. Images need to have an image tag applied to the image description page indicating the copyright status of the image. This uniform and easy-to-understand method of indicating the license status allows potential re-users of the images to know what they are allowed to do with the images.

For more information on using images, see the following pages:

This is an automated notice by OrphanBot. If you need help on selecting a tag to use, or in adding the tag to the image description, feel free to post a message at Wikipedia:Media copyright questions. 12:05, 17 March 2007 (UTC)

Copyright status of additions to Rolls-Royce RZ2[edit]

Is this stuff OK, re WP:COPYVIO ? The style of the spelling typos suggests that it was OCRed from paper, which would be suspicious for copyright. Andy Dingley (talk) 17:43, 2 April 2010 (UTC)

I'm afraid the style of the typing indicates entirely that it was done from my memory. :-) and from 50 years ago, I'm pretty proud of that :-)))) I am more than happy to write to Rolls Royce if you wish and seek a release? Would that help? In my view that was some engine, the RZ2 Mk3 and since I am the only man to have stood 200 yards away from one while it was running without protection you may understand that I say that with some feeling (and very little common sense). My bona fides are that I was the engineer on the engine control panel for the static firing trials of Blue Streak at Spadeadam and later the Data acquisition supervisor. Do you know that was so long ago that I also became one of the first programmers to attempt to analyse trials data on a computer? Ye Gods! Drg40 (talk) 19:25, 2 April 2010 (UTC)

File source and copyright licensing problem with File:Top layers of Castell showing layout.jpg[edit]

File Copyright problem

Thanks for uploading File:Top layers of Castell showing layout.jpg. I noticed that the file's description page currently doesn't specify who created the content, so the copyright status is unclear. If you did not create this file yourself, you will need to specify the owner of the copyright. If you obtained it from a website, then a link to the website from which it was taken, together with a restatement of that website's terms of use of its content, is usually sufficient information. However, if the copyright holder is different from the website's publisher, their copyright should also be acknowledged.

As well as adding the source, we also need to know the terms of the license that the copyright holder has published the file under, usually done by adding a licensing tag. If you created/took the picture, audio, or video then the {{GFDL-self}} tag can be used to release it under the GFDL. If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Non-free content, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use in|article name}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:Image copyright tags#Fair use. See Wikipedia:Image copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have specified their source and tagged them, too. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. Unsourced and untagged files may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If the file is copyrighted under a non-free license (per Wikipedia:Fair use) then the file will be deleted 48 hours after 14:55, 21 May 2010 (UTC). If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. ww2censor (talk) 14:55, 21 May 2010 (UTC)

File:Top layers of Castell showing layout.jpg missing description details[edit]

Dear uploader: The media file you uploaded as File:Top layers of Castell showing layout.jpg is missing a description and/or other details on its image description page.

If you have any questions please see Help:Image page. Thank you. ww2censor (talk) 13:37, 4 June 2010 (UTC)

Thankyou for that - I'm afraid I find the whole image process somewhat confusing - not that the info requested is unreasonable, just the process by which it is added. Probably having difficulty reading again!

Anyway, can you tell me how I find out whether the page I was talking about has an author or someone else who takes ownership? I ask because I modified one page on an area of Spain in what I thought was a mild and complimentary manner to discover that even my justification of the change on the talk page had been eradicated. Clearly I had blotted my copybook in some way, but I have yet to find out how, or whether the page concerned was under the absolute control of some authority. How do I tell, or have I misinterpreted something?


The addition you propose looks very interesting. Spanish articles are often very poor here, I don't know why. I am Italian and lately I am trying to expand them or improve their quality. Let me know and good work!! --'''Attilios''' (talk) 20:58, 10 September 2010 (UTC)
